During the offseason, the Bengals made solid additions on both sides of the ball through free agency and the draft. After the conclusion of the draft, it appeared as if they were officially set at every position. The Bengals appeared to have found their new No. 2 receiver in either Mohamed Sanu or Marvin Jones. However, the Bengals might not be done making additions to a relatively young receiving group.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter (via Evan Silva), the Bengals are one of two teams to have expressed interest in free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

At this point, it's not known how much interest the Bengals have in Edwards or what his role would be with the team. If anything, he would bring a veteran presence to a very young offense. The 29-year-old receiver has spent eight seasons in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and most recently the San Francisco 49ers. The former first round selection has had trouble staying on the field the past four seasons as he has only appeared in 41 of a potential 64 games. Last year with the 49ers, Edwards compiled 15 catches for 181 yards in nine games. He failed to record a touchdown for the first time since 2009.

Edwards has had some success though, as he made the Pro Bowl squad in 2007 as a member of the Cleveland Browns. During that season he had 80 catches for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns in 16 games. But that was his first and last season of glory as he has failed to surpass 60 catches since.

However, Edwards comes with his fair share of baggage as he has had a few run-ins with the law. In 2010, as a member of the Jets, he was arrested and charged with DWI in September. And in 2009, Edwards was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor assault after punching an individual outside of a Cleveland night club.

But again, this can't be stressed enough, it's not known how much interest the Bengals have and what his role would be with the team. Let's hope the Bengals decide to look elsewhere for a veteran wide receiver or that they just let the young receiving squad develop on their own.
